Flounder with Charred Salsa

charred salsa Cooking Tips:

When charring the vegetables some will char faster than the others. You can char the vegetables under the broiler or grill. If you like your salsa spicy do not discard the seeds.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Sauce can be made a day or two in advance. After salsa cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Turn on heat to medium, add all ingredients in a small or medium sauce pan, cook until mixture starts to boil. About 5 minutes or less. *Depends on how much you’re reheating.

Substitution Options:

If you do not like spicy, remove the seeds.

A 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, usually does the trick for me.
